This is what Fuji thinks about Sony: “big advantage on sensors, weak in lenses”

New X-PRO2 vs A6000 size comparison (via Camerasize).

Dpreview interviewed Fuji and this is what they think about Sony:

Toru Takahashi: “Sony has a big advantage, they make their own sensors. That is a very big advantage for them, but they are weak in lenses.”
Toshihisa Iida: “And they are weakened by having so many formats. APS-C, full-frame, [across both] DSLR and mirrorless. So their lens division must be under a lot of pressure!”

And after the interview Barnaby Britton from dpreview added an editor’s note: “representatives from more than one manufacturer have suggested to me privately that they doubt whether Sony is serious about sub full-frame formats in the long term

Now I am curious to read your comments on this :)

Sony Tidbits…

Jona (video on top):I am a young 19 Years old Filmmaker from South Tyrol (Italy). I shot a lot of videos with my Dji Phantom 3 Professional over the last year and now I released my new video with all the amazing of the Dolomites. It is so difficult to share the videos, It would be so amazing if you help me sharing it !

TheSpaniard:While this isn’t strictly Sony, it is a story from our favourite lens manufacturer for our Somy cameras, Carl Zeiss. They’ve made a Smart glasses, ala Google Glass.

Immodoc:Hi, the world’s first comparison of version 1 and version 3 of the VOIGTLÄNDER Heliar 4,5/15 on the SONY A7RII in difficult lighting conditions:

Roderick:Hi there, here is something I shot during my holiday last year in Costa da Caparica(Portugal) in between surfing, using A7s and mainly Noct Nikkor 58mm F/1.2 and 24mm AF-S F/1.4, and a 100mm AIS Nikkor E with a 2x extender for the kite surf shots. It was shot pretty much run and gun, but the surf shots were done using a monopod for stability. Mainly 1080p24 and 720p120 for the surf shots.

Sony confirms the RX1rII will ship again from February 19!


Sony Japan issued an official press text to confirm that the RX1RII shipment will resume on February 19!
It’s also good to know that our source gave use that information in advance yesterday. And for you it will be even more exciting to hear that the same source confirmed the A6100 is coming ;)

RX1RII store search link: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay

The reason for the delay has not been mentioned by Sony but we can assume that the source who gave us the press information yesterday shared also the correct cause of the delay:

Apparently issue with new rx1 camera was caused by light leak when shooting under harsh direct light. Light was getting inside the camera only with evf up. Cameras that were sold with that issue will be replaced, new shipment of cameras doesn’t have that problem anymore. There should be official announcement tomorrow, dealers were already asked to trace back customers that bought rx1rm2
Good news is that they traced the problem themselves and didn’t follow Nikon “lets hope that no one will find out” path ?

Federico:In the spring I have organized a photo shoot with some friends: the theme was the tradition of our land, the Po Valley in the North-West of Italy and the vast ricefields near Vercelli. The rice culture is present in our countryside for nearly a thousand years, you can imagine how deep and how strong this has shaped the land and the people. In the mid-eighteenth century, the farms became small villages, where dozens of families lived. In the spring the weeders arrived: women working in the sweltering heat of the ricefields.
Since 2004 Mr. Mario Donato has created a museum of rural culture and tradition in the farm “Colombara”: the workshops of the blacksmith and the saddler, the apartments of the farmers, the school, the old stables, the dormitory of weeders that we used as a set. As models we involved the local company of actors “The Camalli” who were dressed and made up in the style of the Po Valley countriside in the early twentieth century.
All photos were taken with my new Sony A7II and a good old Contax Zeiss 50mm f1.7.
You can see the photos on my dedicated 500px gallery
